Cru D'or Organic - North Coast

Cru D'or Organic
Belgian Strong Ale

Ratebeer 3.37 80th percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +2

No surprises here; nose emitting aromas of sour cherries, sherry, dark sugar and alcohol. The only thing you could taste was alcohol. Very sour flavours of plum, raisin, caramel and chocolate. Overall it was a little intense. As the beer warmed up things just got worse. Organic is not always better.

Aftertaste +1

There were mostly memories of alcohol, watered down dark fruits and earth.

Alcohol Content +1 8%

No hiding this flavour anywhere.
Value 0

For a Belgian it was a little unbalanced. It was more like a Lucky force 8 with added sherry.

Ingame Enhancement 0

Sorry, I got nothing.
Overall 4/10

There are better big Belgians out there, see links below.
